[OSM-talk] Planet, osm2pgsql interruptus, and reclaiming disk space

I have a problem with osm2pgsql and postgres, I hope someone can point  
me in the right direction for a fix. I started up a whole-planet  
osm2pgsql import session from a recent planet dump. While that was  
going on, the computer had to be rebooted and the process was  
interrupted. Now I have no data tables (okay) and a few dozen GB less  
disk space (not okay). I tried to "vacuum full" the planet_osm  
database, but didn't reclaim any space. Where does storage go when  
osm2pgsql is rudely interrupted like that? Temp files? A core dump  
somewhere? Any advice much appreciated.
